May 2018 Jobs Report is Great News for Everyone in America Except Democrats Running for Office in 2018
DO DEMOCRATS WANT POSITIVE JOBS NUMBERS FOR AMERICA? THE ANSWER IS NO, NOT WHEN TRUMP GETS THE KUDOS.
As reported at CNBC, the May 2018 jobs report was good for everyone, except Democrat politicians looking for jobs in the 2018 midterm elections. The reality is that the U.S. economy is booming and it is President Donald Trump and the GOP who are responsible. Democrats have been nothing more than obstructionists and the “resistance” to President Trump’s agenda. Now all Americans, black, Hispanic, Asian, white, female, male, are all befitting from Trump’s economic agenda. Pelosi and Democrats would have you believe this is bad. Really? This is all they got and it is a lie.
- Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
- That’s because voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
- With the jobless rate now down to 3.8 percent, Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races face a major challenge as they try to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
Among the many contentious topics swirling around this year’s campaign, none is more important than the perennial issue of employment. Voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
That poses a major challenge for Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races who are looking to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
The economy added roughly 223,000 net new jobs in May, pushing the jobless rate a tick lower to 3.8 percent, an 18-year low.
68% OF AMERICANS CREDIT TRUMP FOR MAKING AMERICAN ECONOMY GREAT AGAIN …
According to a recent CBS News Nation tracker poll, 68% of Americans give President Donald Trump the credit for the good economy we are currently experiencing. OUCH, that has to sting the liberal MSM. With all of the negative press coverage provided by the MSM, it would appear that Americans could care less what the bias media has to say and are looking at their wallets, pocketbooks and around them for themselves. The poll also states that 7 in 10 of whom say they’d prefer a candidate he backs and view Trump as a positive factor. Maybe the idiotic establishment GOP would like to get on board with the American people ahead of the 2018 primaries.
What does this mean? The closer we get to the 2018 midterm elections, the more the American people are favoring Trump and the GOP. The once huge double digit lead by Democrats in the polls are gone. Americans no longer have to listen to the Democrat and liberal media rhetoric, they can evaluate the results of Trump’s policies for themselves. Blue wave, really? Haven’t we seen this game play out before the 2016 elections when the LEFT said Hillary Clinton was a sure thing and the Democrats were going to take back the House and the Senate?
Nearly 2 in 3 Americans think the nation’s economy is in good shape, and most of them believe President’s Trump’s policies are at least somewhat responsible for that. More Republicans rate the economy positively than do Democrats.
As Congressional primaries continue and Americans look ahead six months to their midterm votes, Mr. Trump looks like a positive factor among Republicans, 7 in 10 of whom say they’d prefer a candidate he backs — but the president’s influence is limited to his own party. More Independents say they’re less likely to support a candidate backed by Mr. Trump.
The economy and the president’s support
This survey has followed the levels of Trump support and opposition over time. Today, buoyed by their feelings that the economy is at least somewhat good, the ranks of Mr. Trump’s strongest backers have risen to 22 percent from 18 percent back in January. Many of these backers had previously adopted a wait-and-see approach, labeling themselves as more conditional in their support a few months ago. Supporters overall – both strong and conditional — together remain less than a majority, however, while the ranks of the strongest Trump opponents have remained steady.
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FALLS TO 3.9%, BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT TO RECORD LOW OF 6.6% …
Yes, President Donald Trump is making America great again and in some cases making it greater than ever before. The Unemployment rate for April 2018 has fallen to 3.9%. This is a 17 and a half year low for the U.S. unemployment rate. The news was even better for minorities as the unemployment rate for black workers dropped to a record low 6.6%, beating the previous record low of 6.8% set in December. The jobless rate for Hispanics fell to 4.8%, tying the record reached last year and in 2006. This is tremendous news for America and troublesome for Democrats, the LEFT and the liberal MSM. Even as under the Trump administration minorities are making considerable gains in the work force, the miserable LEFT and MSM still manages to find the negative. Hmm, where were these people during the 8 yeas of Obama when blacks had double digit unemployment?
U.S. job growth increased less than expected in April and the unemployment rate dropped to near a 17-1/2-year low of 3.9 percent as some out-of-work Americans left the labor force.
The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday also showed wages barely rose last month, which may ease concerns that inflation pressures are rapidly building up, likely keeping the Federal Reserve on a gradual path of monetary policy tightening.“
Fed officials can rest easy that there is not any wage-based inflation on the horizon,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG in New York. “There is no need to speed up the path of interest rates because inflation isn’t heating up in a worrisome manner.”
Nonfarm payrolls increased by 164,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department reported. Data for March was revised to show the economy adding 135,000 jobs instead of the previously reported 103,000. That was the fewest amount of jobs created in six months and followed an outsized gain of 324,000 in February.
But 236,000 people left the labor force in April, adding to the 158,000 who quit in March. The labor force participation rate, or the proportion of working-age Americans who have a job or are looking for one, fell to 62.8 percent last month from 62.9 percent in March. It was the second straight monthly drop in the participation rate.
Where was the LEFT and MSM calling out Obama during his 8 years for the difference between black and white unemployment? Instead, the miserable LEFT and MSM continue to be all things negative to Trump and put Obama op on high. Really, the numbers show that there is less of a disparage between blacks and whites under Trump. Both black and white unemployment has gone down about 0.6% since the November 2016 elections,; however, the difference is that these are historic lows for blacks. The majority of time during Obama, blacks witnessed double digit unemployment as there were a record number of individuals on food stamps. The fact of the matter is that if Trump was president in 2008-2016, blacks would have seen the benefits they see now, just that much sooner.
The LEFT and Democrats are freaking out that minorities are seeing record low unemployment and might just vote as the silent black and Hispanic voter with Trump and the GOP in 2018 and 2020.
TRUMP ECONOMY ROARS … 313 JOBS ADDED IN FEBRUARY!!!
Via CNBC, the U.S. economy added a whopping 313,000 jobs in February smashing the 200,000 jobs estimated. Construction jobs lead the way with 61,000 followed by retail at 50,000, business services at 50,000, manufacturing with 31,000, financial activities with 28,000 and healthcare with 19,000. Even mining saw 9000 new jobs. There were also adjustments upward in the previous two months, December went from 160,000 to 175,000 while January saw a boost from the initially reported 200,000 to 239,000. The DOW jumped 200 points upon the fantastic jobs report. President Donald Trump’s economic vision is working for America and Making America great again! America, this is the Trump economy and it is his policies and visions, which are 180 degrees opposite of his predecessor that are making the difference. This would never had happened had Hillary Clinton won or will it continue to occur if Democrats seize control of power in either the House or Senate in 2018. The Resistance, eh? What exactly are Democrats, the LEFT and the MSM resisting? Prosperity?
The economy added 313,000 jobs in February, crushing expectations, while the unemployment rate remained at 4.1 percent, according to a Labor Department report Friday that could help quell inflation fears.
Economists surveyed by Reuters had been expecting nonfarm payroll growth of 200,000 and the unemployment rate to decline one-tenth of a percent to 4 percent.
A separate measure that takes into account those out of the workforce and the underemployed — sometimes referred to as the “real” unemployment rate — held steady at 8.2 percent.
Construction jobs led the way, with 61,000 new positions, followed by retail and professional and business services (50,000 apiece), manufacturing (31,000) and financial activities (28,000). Health care added 19,000 while mining saw 9,000 new jobs.
Investors were watching the report closely not only for clues about job growth but also whether wage pressures were continuing to build. Wage growth came in less than expected, rising 0.1 percent for the month and 2.6 percent on an annualized basis.
In addition to the big job growth, previous months’ counts were revised substantially higher. December went from 160,000 to 175,000 while January saw a boost from the initially reported 200,000 to 239,000. That brings the three-month average to 242,000.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for Blacks declined to 6.9 percent in February, while the jobless rates for adult men (3.7 percent), adult women (3.8 percent), teenagers (14.4 percent), Whites (3.7 percent), Asians (2.9 percent), and Hispanics (4.9 percent) showed little change.

2018 State of the Union Speech … President Trump States African American Unemployment Stands at the Lowest Rate Ever Recorded and Black Caucus Disgracefully Sits (VIDEO)
JUST HOW SCARED OF PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE BLACK POLITICIANS AND DEMOCRATS … HE IS PUTTING BLACK AMERICA BACK TO WORK AGAIN.
President Donald Trump is helping Make America Great Again for everyone. Trump’s economic visions does not discriminate. However, sadly the race-baitors in Washington, DC who would rather see their constituents continue to struggle, rather than Trump’s plan work. Fortunately that is not the case and Democrats look very petty and small.
Last night during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, he provided a list of amazing economic accomplishments from his first year in Office, none more remarkable that black unemployment being at an all-time recorded low. President Trump stated, “And something I am very proud of, African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.”
The reaction from the Democrat black caucus, crickets. Not one individual stood, of those that actually attended the SOTU. One individual, just one actually bothered to clap. UNBELIEVABLE. They could have cared less. This is leadership? Do you think this would have been the reaction to Barack Obama or Bill Clinton? Of course not. As stated at PJ Media, “Indeed, black unemployment reached a record low under President Trump. The fact that these black congressional leaders hold their hatred for Trump more precious than their celebration of success for their own community is telling.” These people are petrified that Trump is making inroads into the black community by taking them off the dependency of government welfare and providing them well-paying jobs. In the 2016 Trump received 8% of the black vote after being called a racist and white supremacist. That was dramatically up from 2012 and 2008. Look for the Democrats, LEFT’s, media’s and Congressional black caucuses worst nightmare to come true in 2020 … Trump will get double digits of black vote and break that Democrat wall too.
